Simply Citrus Love...

I am SORRY it has been so long since you have heard from me.  I have been in the middle of (and actually still in the middle of) a craft room makeover.  And things have taken a little longer than expected, as they do.  BUT...I can't wait to show you the final product!  It is looking AMAZING!!!!

But for today...I am going to talk about my FAVORITE new kit!!!  I just LOVE the Simply Citrus Card Kit!  Have you seen it?!  The kit cards are SOOOOO cute and then you have a DARLING stamp set at the end of it!  That is the stamp set that I used to make this fun treat box:

Inks:  Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Basic Black, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, Brights 6"x6" Designer Series Paper

Watercolor, splatter, embossing...does it get much better?! 😊  Maybe...when you add this ribbon...

💕 LOVE LOVE LOVE!! 💕 I believe it is quite possible I will be going through many spools of this ribbon.  Hee.  But....YUM!!  Luckily the other ribbons in this combo pack are just as yummy!  😃

Also...a fun little tip.  Take some Designer Series Paper, cut into narrow strips, and pleat onto a project.  I LOVE the texture this gives...

I hope you enjoy!  Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!  Those cute little vellum looking flowers come from the kit also.  I had some leftover.  I need these in bulk too because they are SOOOOO cute!!!!

Thanks for visiting!

Here are just a few details on this card:


I first embossed the confetti onto watercolor paper.  Then I did a fun watercolor wash over it.  


Add some Stitched Stars cut out from Vellum and then add the greeting.  The greeting was embossed onto Basic Black cardstock, and then just cut out!  

 All in all...I think it came out fun and celebratory!
